My Thoughts On Twitter, 4/30/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

#Kabbalah is a science about forces of nature that manage the world, and how man can reveal/attain them
In us, these forces operate as male and female inclinations
The 3rd force, incorporating + and – is the Creator, the higher illumination, the middle line. We reveal it between us.

#Science reveals the laws of matter. But where is antimatter expressed, where does it annihilate with matter?
Kabbalah: Matter is the will to receive, ego. We must reveal the opposite, #altruistic antimatter, and upon the interaction between the two, we’ll sense the upper world.

Everything people do is a subconscious attempt of self-expression, expression of the need to become similar to the Creator. This is what drives people and it’s the foundation of art—the need to come closer to creativity, the Creator, creation.
Hence, all roads lead to Kabbalah!

True #art will enable man to create within him all forms that aren’t expressed in matter. Through it, he will reach adhesion with the Upper Force. His spiritual works are similar to the Creator’s works. Thus, we attain the Creator as a master artist who created the world and us.

The role of art is to develop our ability to create from spiritual matter. Our matter is the will to receive. By limiting it, we create the form of bestowal. Thus I create the Creator’s form out of myself—a desire clothed in the intention to bestow. This form is called Man/Adam

I would expect them to show examples of the tendency to unite above differences, that a kind, loving and caring attitude to others above all the primal divisive urges is what defines #Jews at their nucleus. #NataliePortman (My full article on @BINAlerts  … )

It stems from sheer self-interest, and it’s why I’m not interested in dealing with it. If we’re speaking about Jewish people in the entertainment industry, then I would expect them to portray an authentic representation of the Jewish essence. #NataliePortman

Backed by the immense material strength of an audacious industry, actors ride controversial #media trends, mostly political ones, showing support or opposition to one of the sides, in order to create buzz and empower their public image. #entertainment

#Life is the sensation of desire encountering pleasure, like the first sip of water by a desperately thirsty person. But when the desire is filled, the pleasure disappears.
Hence, eternal pleasure, eternal life, is built upon fulfillment of intention, not desire.

Whether the world is felt as horrible or beautiful depends on the qualities of the observer.
#quotesoftheday #inspiration

We feel the world in the egoistic desire “to receive.”
If we switch to the desire “to bestow,” our perception of the world will change and we’ll see smiles.
Nature will manifest as total good.

Don’t regret any thoughts/feelings. What matters is your aspiration. One must alter intentions, constantly improving them. If intentions are correct, don’t check the thought/desire. The only useful act is to change the intention: whom do I intend to benefit—myself or the Creator?

To control destiny, one must rise above destiny, to the force that controls #destiny.
#quotes #success

There are only two authorities—authorities of love,
One is the authority of love for myself, and the other is the authority of love for others.
I am between them—a small point
Not an easy choice…

There won’t be suffering if “Look at them and they’ll turn into a pile of bones.” Everything is an illusion, shadows scaring us. Everything comes from the Creator and it’s our fault if we can’t turn it into #goodness. We must realize what a huge spiritual #force we have inside us.

Towards the friend’s heart, I pave a path to the upper world
To the friend, it’s corporeal
To me, it’s spiritual.
Connecting the worlds.
#quotes #sundaymotivation #wisdom

I choose the path: to blame the Creator or thank Him for revelation of evil, which I correct—even the threat of a world war.

The path of suffering is if I can’t connect them to the group and the Creator inside it.
If I connect disturbances with unity and the Creator, it’s the path of correction.

An overall economic recession is underway. Living standards are falling. Many industries are operating at a loss. Our incomes are reverting to the mid-20th c.
Development can occur if there’s a spiritual component. When it matches the corporeal one, corporeality can then grow.

What Is A Kabbalist’s Attitude To Everyday Life?

Laitman_036Question: What is a Kabbalist’s attitude to everyday life and its luxuries?

Answer: A Kabbalist is an ordinary person. He wants everything around him to be arranged in a simple and convenient way. I saw this both in my teacher and in other Kabbalists. They did not have anything superfluous: simple healthy food, simple furniture, comfortable clothes.

At the same time, a Kabbalist does not impose any restrictions on himself. He has everything a person needs: food, sex, family, work, etc. It is absolutely forbidden to deny yourself of the elementary filling of our world, because doing so you would stop the implementation of the program of creation. You must live a full life simultaneously in both worlds: material and spiritual.

Question: Does it mean that if the Creator gave me a lot of pleasures, then I should try everything?

Answer: No. You must take from this world what is needed to function normally and to attain the upper world. The upper world is the goal, and this world is the means to achieve the goal.

Question: That is, I myself decide, depending on my moral level, what I need?

Answer: Only if you do not harm others.

A Question To Oneself

119Question: What question should a student of Kabbalah ask oneself every day?

Answer: The most important thing is not to part from the feeling that there is none else besides Him. Never disconnect from this.

That is why each student should constantly ask him or herself the question: “What must I do so that I do not separate myself from the source of all existence?”

“The Greatest Role Natalie Portman … Should Aspire To”

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 4/29/18

It’s no secret that the media thrives on generating hysteria by amplifying celebrities’ insignificant comments into wildfires of public opinion. What should we ask ourselves is why do we enjoy it so much? Why do we let ourselves get swept into this socially divisive snowball effect? Why don’t we enjoy it more socially beneficial ways, by engaging in the creation of a more positively connected society?

A Dream Or Not A Dream

laitman_220Question from Facebook: So we do not exist, and everything is just a dream? Does this include concentration camps too?

Answer: Indeed, when we see the true picture of the eternal world permeated with perfection and love, we understand that, as it is written in the Psalms, “We were like in a dream.” In other words, in isolation, in disconnection from reality.

All that we perceive before this state—our entire lives today, everything that we have gone through and everything that we will still go through—is drawn by our corrupted properties. And if we do not correct them, then many difficult problems, be it wars or other disasters, lie ahead of us.

But on the other hand, we can correct what is inside of us and go through the next stages in a positive way.

In general, we “prepare” our future for ourselves—through our uncorrected or already corrected properties. They should manifest themselves against the background of the white light—absolute love and bestowal. If we do not approach it voluntarily, then we are led by a circular path of suffering.

New Life 27 – Concession In Regard To Marriage

New Life 27 – Concession In Regard To Marriage
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi, Nitzah Mazoz and Orit Dolev

The family unit has been completely destroyed since we no longer understand male and female natures. The idea of the family is embedded in all levels of nature – the still, vegetative, and animate. However, in today’s society, we feel no need for relationships. The framework of modern life simply doesn’t allow for the possibility of sustaining a good family and actually supports divorce. We have been turned into machines to create profit for someone else.

Relationships require a supportive society. We need to be educated in order to maintain our relationships.
